Natural Animal Health Concept 3

An animal’s inability to say what it is feeling worsens the tendency of modern medicine to focus on the immediate problem and treat the malady as fast as possible, whether with drugs, surgery, natural medicine, or all three. The philosophy of good health begins with having “a strong immune system.” When it comes to   animals, the consultant, must be super sensitive and have good training so that he/she will know what to do for an animal.  This is similar to the philosophy of “Natural Health” for humans. It begins and finishes with good nutrition, vitamins & minerals, proper exercise, understanding of diseases that may occur, and controlling the stress both physically and mentally.

Organic Farming and Food Production 3

Homeopathy, a healing branch of medicine discovered over 200 years ago, has been highly successful with humans and animals. Presently, it is making a “come-back” in America.

These substances, at times, may be toxic, but when they are produced a certain way for remedies, they become harmless in the body. Substances are made from vegetable, mineral, animal and other sources, which are made from a crude substance or alcohol extact call the mother tincture. The knowledge you’ve gain from this study may change the way you view homeopathic medicine, and what he can do for animals and humans.

When using massage you’ll learn exactly how to rub certain muscles in a pet, and also how to use acupressure for even better reponse. Western practitioners explain massagae and acuprressure by saying: “It is effective because it stimulataes nerves increaes blood circulaion, relieves muscles spasms and releases hormones, all of which asist the  body’s self-healing.
